“But perhaps that’s because we’re literary pedants, and maybe you’re not.

“This should be compulsory reading in schools everywhere” – Another Day in the Death of America by Gary Younge

“The main message of Younge’s book, though, is that even those who would consider themselves gangsters did not deserve what they got. They were still children. Who didn’t make mistakes at their age? Luckily, a lot of our mistakes weren’t made when we were surrounded by guns. By telling their stories Younge does what the media never does, makes us see them as a person with hopes and dreams rather than just another statistic…” – Fran Slater reviews Gary Younge’s Another Day in the Death of America
